obama. lou: you are not on the top, i can assure you that. speaking on the news, bob shafer talking about the president's comments, as he announced his proposal, look how he compares president obama taking on gun owners. >> surely, fines osama bin laden surely passing civil rights legislation, as lyndon johnson did, and surely defeating nazis, waa much more form it able task than taking on the gun lobby. this is a turning point in this country. and the president, is going to have to to do more than just make a speech about it, this is one of the best speeches i heard him deliver. but it will take more than that from the white house, he will have to get his hands dirty. lou: exciting when you hear a man talk truth to power like that. >> it soups like he was reading it -- it looked likely was reading it he scripted those, i think any time get into comparing anything to naziism, to gag like thatto -- going likn gone too far, talking about law abiding americans, i think that is about as far off base as you can get lou: steve? >> well, i don't disagree with what he is saying, i don't li
the president and mrs. obama looking at bookshelf. they talked about the importance of this day. >> this inauguration, we're going to be -- it's a symbol of how our democracy work and how we peacefully transfer power but it should be an affirmation we're all in this together. >> molly: the vice president and his family participated in the national day of service. they filled care packages for deployed servicemen and women. mr. biden says the troops overseas that we remember them. the area around the washington monument there were opportunities for people that wanted to get involved. they could make cards for foster care children, create a mural, learn how to use recycled materials and more. here is what some of the participants said about the events. >> came all the way from las vegas for the inauguration and a day of service. >> i think it is important because we can take communities back to our community and communities can grow and prosper and pass on all the ideas that we have learned here. >> molly: also participating on the mall, chelsea clinton and delaware attorney gener
that does it then ring hollow? how do you bring truth to those words? >> this is a new, feisty obama we are seeing since the elections, that's for sure, a question who he will be, as he moves into the second term slam. lot of talk about lincoln's second inaugural, which i think by standards is the gold standard and the greatest of the second inaugural addresses that we know. >> because? >> because it came at the pivotal moment of maximum peril for the nation and it was a real statement about how we could be larger as a democracy and reembrace those who had been against the country and come back together. but i have been looking at franklin ross vel's second inaugur inaugural, 1937, which is interesting, because it was a very can candid, honest progress report about what had not yet been accomplished coming out of the great depression but also a statement how we had to come together, useself government as the most noble expression. and use very precise terms, if you go back and look that the speech there is very real room for president obama now to say to the country, these are the thing
. not at all. >> thanks, lisa. >>> the national rifle association is about to respond to president obama's crackdown on guns, the powerful gun rights lobbying group will join us later in this hour in "the situation room." lots to talk about with david kooen. stay with us. ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watching. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> let's continue the conversation in our strategy session. joining us right now, two cnn political contributors. the democratic pollster cornell belcher and republican strategist alex castellanos. the president laid out a very am bishops shous plan to deal with guns. cornell, you're familiar with this issue. can he deliver? >> well, i think he can deliver. if you look poll after poll, this is where the american people are. what happened in connecticut was a conscience jarring for americans. similar to what we saw on 9/11 where the world is not the same. americans are hungry for change. the assault weapons ban, the commonsense registration laws, fixing the loopholes, th
the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to bode well for their ability to compromise with him and for the president to get a second term agenda passed.
this. and the europeans. >> rose: i thank you for taking time to come talk with us about this. >> thanks so much, charlie, pleasure. >> just to put this into the context not just of africa but of the broader fight against al qaeda, because president obama has often said that al qaeda is on its way to defeat and it's probably true that the central al qaeda ornization which was one headed by osama bin laden and headquartered in pakistan probably matter a lot less now than a few years ago but what you have seen is that as we pit al qaeda in the core area in afghanistan and pakistan it splintered outward and moved outward. and now are you seeing, you know, like a virus trying to find a body in which it can find a weak host. it's moving out and becoming more powerful in places like yemen, somalia, libya, now mali. so it's moving further and further a field and there are so many weak states because this is where terrorists te rt. they take root in failed states there are so many failed states in africa it is not just mali there are a lot of other places and now increasingly in north
in our d.c. bureau. james, we talked about this as a very fluid, very dangerous situation. what do we now know? >> reporter: jenna, good afternoon. white house officials are now saying president obama is receiving regular updates on this situation which remains as you say ongoing and sensetive. the numbers involved here have varied wildly with the latest from algeria's state news service now saying nearly 100 of 132 hostages seized have been freed. that word comes after algerian security forces launched a helicopter assault on the complex yesterday. 18 of the islamist militants have been reported killed. however there are reports two filipino hostages have died. earlier today britain's prime minister confirmed the death of one britain. he said london received no advance notice of the helicopter raid. >> when i spoke to the algerian prime minister later last night he told me this first operation was complete but this is a large and complex site and they are still pursuing terrorists and possibly some of the hostages in other areas of the site. the algerian prime minister has just told me t
